Weekend links

I had so much fun hosting a favorite things giveaway to celebrate my birthday—I just may start doing this every year, who knows? And since I’m channeling my inner Oprah with this, I so wish I could give each of you a car (EVERYBODY GETS A CAR!). But I can’t. One day, perhaps.

So here are the winners for now:

Congrats to all of you! Please look for an email in your inbox and reply as soon as possible. And have a restful Labor Day weekend!

  1. The deeper story link doesn’t seem to be working at the moment?

  2. Just wondering if I am the “erin” who won the Whats in the Bible series. I was about to buy it!

  3. Deeper Story won’t open for me either… Tried both links. Same as above – just a black screen that says coming soon. 🙁

  4. Hey folks looking for the Deeper Story post… I deleted the plugin that put up an “Under Construction” page, and deleted the cache. It should work okay for you now!

  5. I can’t open the Deeper Story site either, tried it in both Chrome & Firefox. Stinks, sounds like an intriguing read.

  6. I just went to deeperstory.com and found the post. It’s currently the third post from the top. I hope that helps.

  7. I was so excited to see my name listed as a winner…until I opened my email and it wasn’t me. Bummer! Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. Long live crazy vacuum.
    I already purchased one also to my mom. She is extremely happy with this amazing robotic vacuum. I bought it after I went through many reviews about neato xv-21. My house never been clean like this before.
